Blurb: In this Penguin eSpecial, under the blazing heat of the Borneo sun, a beautiful naturalist’s dream comes true–to live among the feral jungle creatures. But an untamed, irresistible beast of another sort forces her to explore her own wild side.
Review: I have to get back into my un-biased mindset, I’ve not read a Christine Feehan book in a good couple of months. I know, at least I remember how the other books are, how intense they are.
I’m very happy with this introduction to the leopard people, kind of like getting your feet wet before jumping into the body of water to get used to it quickly.
Also, it’s become rather rare in the Feehan world as of late to really have an artist male lead who gets a little flustered when his art is brought up. It was cute and refreshing. The cover finally got something after years of just really not having anything and the cover is not as amazing as the German edition but would still make me grab the book off a shelf to read the back.
I thought I would want the blurb to be longer but in just those few sentences, the author grabs your attention. The writing drags you into the rain forest and I could see everything that was happening.
A little mystery and action to keep the story interesting but a good, slow read that doesn’t overwhelm the reader and keeps a steady pace for the plot.
I would definitely recommend people to start this series.
Thank you for reading my review.
